Mayors converge on Israel


Some 26 mayors from more than a dozen countries are visiting Israel for a conference on municipal cooperation.

Mayors from United States, Canada, Australia, the Philippines, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Hungary, Greece, Kenya, Tanzania, El Salvador, Uruguay, Malta, Cape Verde, Peru and Bosnia & Herzegovina arrived in Israel Sunday for the conference, hosted by the mayors of Israel’s three largest cities, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa.

While in Israel the mayors will meet with their local counterparts, national leaders, and leading non-profits and private industry experts to discuss ways that local authorities can leverage international cooperation to improve their communities.

The two-day conference is being held under the auspices of the American Council for World Jewry, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Union of Local Authorities in Israel.
